Former LSU offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth suffered a torn left MCL and damage to the PCL during the LA Rams 23-16 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

There is some hope that Whitworth might be able to return this season and he posted this upbeat message on his Instagram:


I’m so thankful! God has blessed me with such an amazing 15 years playing @nfl football. And now I get an opportunity to lead in a different way while also rehabbing myself back ready to ride with my teammates! I get a chance to put my leadership to test. Who am I in adversity? Is it really about more than just me? How hard can I push myself to return? What can I pour into my teammates from the sideline? What an amazing Opp! I’m so grateful for this opp and I can’t wait to attack it with all the passion I have for people who support me and the men I take the field with every week! I get a chance to be about all the things I stand for! Hope, Faith, Love, perseverance, toughness, selflessness, and a man of my words!

So thankful to my family, my friends, my teammates, and fellow athletes across many sports that have reached out! I won’t let you down! Let’s get it!

We couldn't have a better representative of our state/school. Imagine him talking to OL/DL parents! HOF OL that knows every technique and trick of good DL! Anybody know if he still has a house anywhere in LA?

Not many like him around anymore! His positive attitude and mindset towards all aspects of his life are amazing. Hope he recovers ASAP and if he wants to come back more power to him.
